Welcome to the School of Journalism and Communication.
With more than 550 Journalism and more than a thousand Communication Studies students the school is one of Carleton’s largest. That also means for those starting first year, there are a lot of students on campus who have experience in the program they can share with you as the year unfolds. Our faculty members, located in the River Building, are also more than happy to meet and offer advice to all the students in our programs. Please feel free to drop in if we can be of any assistance or if you just want to talk.
On behalf of all our faculty members and contract instructors I hope you find the coming year to be both challenging and rewarding and that you find the opportunities you are seeking to develop your knowledge and skills.
Director, School of Journalism and Communication
